General description

The AS5510 is an absolute position sensor for linear applications with short strokes (0.5 to 2.0mm) based on contactless magnetic sensor technology. To measure a lateral movement the sensor needs a simple 2-pole magnet and the measured distance depends on the magnet geometry. The absolute position is measured with a resolution of 10 bit = 1024 positions and it is provided as a digital value on the serial interface (I²C).

With two decades of magnetic sensor system know-how, we have broad experience in selecting the most suitable magnets. ams experts recommend the following magnet suppliers.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Camera modules and lense systems in mobile phones
  • Mini pumps
  • Cash counter and checking machines
